Lewis Peter Fisher was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, in 1820. He was the son of Peter Fisher and Susanna Williams and the grandson of Lewis Fisher, a Loyalist, who arrived in New Brunswick with L.P. Fisher's father in 1783. Lewis Peter Fisher read law in the office of the Honourable L.A. Wilmot and later his brother Charles. In 1841, Fisher was admitted to the bar and in 1845, he moved to Woodstock where he formed a partnership with R. K. Jones. This partnership continued until 1875 when Fisher joined Allison Barlow Connell. They remained partners until Fisher's death in 1905.
